Scholarship for PhD Studies in Health

Transforming health through collaborative research

The solution to our health care crisis will not be found in one discipline. An effective and efficient health system requires a collaborative, interdisciplinary and holistic approach. It will require leaders who have the vision and passion to implement fresh approaches and innovative ideas.  

To mark Dal's 200th anniversary and invest in the future of our health care system, we created the Scholarship for PhD Studies in Health. Our goal is to attract and retain the best and the brightest students to our PhD in Health program.

The PhD in Health shapes leaders who look beyond the silos of individual professions and see the opportunity for integrated, team-based solutions. This is the only program of its kind in Canada. It fosters a collaborative approach throughout the Faculty, including at the undergraduate level.

Your generous gift to the Scholarship for PhD Studies in Health will support students in pursuit of important interdisciplinary research collaborations, to maximize health outcomes on a global scale.
